Taken from a forwarded e-mail...

Been sitting here with my ass in a wad, wanting to speak out about the bullshit going on in New Orleans.

For the people of New Orleans... First we would like to say, Sorry for your
loss.

With that said, Lets go through a few hurricane rules: (Unlike an earthquake, we know it's coming)

#1. A manditory evacuation means just that... Get the hell out. Don't blame the Government after they tell you to go. If they hadn't said anything, I can see the arguement. They said get out... if you didn't, it's your fault, not theirs. (We don't want to hear it, even if you don't have a car, you can get out.)

#2. If there is an emergency, stock up on water and non-perishables. If you
didn't do this, it's not the governments fault you're starving.

#! 2a. If you run out of food and water, find a store that has some. (Remember, shoes, TV's, DVD's and CD's are not edible. Leave them alone.)

#2b. If the local store is too looted of food or water, leave your neighbor's tv
and stereo alone. (See # 2a) They worked hard to get their stuff. Just because they were smart enough to leave during a manditory evacuation, doesn't give you the right to take their stuff... it's theirs, not yours.

#3. If someone comes in to help you, don't shoot at them and then complain no one is helping you. I'm not getting shot to help save some dumbass who didn't leave when told to do so.

#4. If you are in your house that is completely under water, your belongings are probably too far gone for anyone to want them. If someone does want them, Let them have them and hopefully they'll die in the filth. Just leave! (For christ's sakes, it's New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a curse on
them)

#5. My! tax money should not pay to rebuild a 2 million dollar house, a sports
stadium or a floating casino. Also, my tax money shouldn't go to rebuild a city
that is under sea level. You wouldn't build your house on quicksand would you? You want to live below sea-level, do your country some good and join the Navy.

#6. Regardless what the Poverty Pimps Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton want you to believe, The US Government didn't create the Hurricane as a way to erradicate the black people of New Orleans; (Neither did Russia as a way to destroy America). The US Government didn't cause global warming that caused the hurricane (We've been coming out of an ice age for over a million years).

#7. The government isn't responsible for giving you anything. This is the land
of the free and the home of the brave, but you gotta work for what you want. McDonalds and Walmart are always hiring, get a damn job and stop spooning off the people who are actually! working for a living.

President Kennedy said it best... "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Thank you for allowing me to rant.

Guys.....it is a forwarded e-mail from someone who was there...take a chill pill. Whether you like it or not, the truth hurts sometimes (looting did happen and people did shoot at rescuers).

Yeah- it was Kennedy, the line worked so well with Marylin Monroe that he thought he'd share it with the country.

On the contrary!! you my friend received the ban for your continual diatribe over many months that did nothing but stir the pot (to put it mildly) so shed a tear if you must but look in the mirror while doing so.

" You cant handle the truth !" by Jack Nicholson ". I think there is some truths in that purtaining to some people. Sooner or later, one gets tired of carrying others on their back. Especially when they say to you, go faster. There were many mistakes made in that disaster. Government is only one piece of that puzzle.That being said, i feel sorrow for them regardless.

Oh, I see. Perhaps I should re-phrase the statement...
